Today is the Feast of St. Dominic, the founder of the Order of Preachers, also known as the Dominicans, and Fr. Tom Condon, prior provincial of the Dominican Province of St. Martin de Porres in Metairie, Louisiana, calls in to talk about the saint, the history of his community and where it is in the 21st century.
During his conversation with Fr. Tom, Gus mentioned once of his priests, Fr. Francis Orozco, who will be joining him and Michelle on their Holy Land pilgrimage in October. He said that going to the Holy Land was on his spiritual bucket list. Gus asks listeners what's on their spiritual bucket lists.
Also, every Monday, Gus does a segment called Tell Me Something Good where he encourages listeners to call up and share their good news in an effort to beat back the Monday morning blues. When he introduces the segment, he always tells folks who want to call in and kvetch and complain not to call in and that he'll do something for them some other time, but he never has. So, today, Gus introduces "Tell Me Something Not Good" and allows listeners to call in and complain and talk about their pet peeves.
